Contents:
Sustainable agricultural practices in the context of Mediterranean water-scarce regions:
an interdisciplinary field trip (Lecture, Excursion, Seminar)
Through the combination of preparatory lectures and student seminars and the 10
days excursion to a Mediterranean country, this module provides participants with
interdisciplinary insights into the ecological, socio-cultural and economic components of
sustainable agricultural systems and practices within the Mediterranean context.
The different agricultural systems, from small- to large size farms, enterprises, local
associations and non-governmental organisations to be visited during the excursion
will exemplify the opportunities and challenges of agricultural activities in their specific
context. In addition, particular attention will be paid to aspects of sustainability, water
management, social and local well-being, and environmental safety.
The participation of different universities and international research institutions will
allow the MSc students to gain a first impression on how field research is organized
and carried out in the Mediterranean countries. In addition, the participation of local
associations and non-governmental institutions will provide another view of the social,
and economic contexts, as well as, conflicts of the specific visited region/country.
Specific general and scientific articles dealing with the excursion country, distributed in
the course.

Examination requirements:
Presentation and critical analysis of a case study that will be covered during the
excursion, focusing on interdisciplinary aspects from the ecological (agricultural
oriented) dimension to the socio-cultural and human well-being contexts, developed
during the preparatory seminars.

Examination prerequisites:
Day protocol of the excursion (max. 2 pages)
